Lily has always been plagued by dreams; she dreams of another place and time, a place of pure beauty and light that suddenly erupts into fire and destruction. Then, there is a man with the haunting blue eyes that seem to look right through her very soul.
In one fateful afternoon Lily learns that the dreams are more real than she could’ve ever imagined. They are a link to who she really is; the Gatekeeper to the realms. Born from both light and dark, with her memories bound, she learns that it is her destiny to gather the relics of the flower of life. Lily must do this in order to close the gates before the under realm destroys them all, but there are those who will stop at nothing to keep her from fulfilling her destiny.
There are those who will try to sway her into the dark. She is torn between the love of two brothers; one, her loyal warrior, who has loved her since the beginning and the other with the enthralling blue eyes that speak to her soul. One brother fights for the light, while the other fell into the darkness. Will she choose the brother that her soul longs for, or the brother that her heart calls out to?
I received this book from the author to give an honest review.
This is one of those books, that will have you from the very beginning. You will want to stay up all night to finish this book, and then be a bit sad when it ends.
Destined is about a girl name Lilly who never knew she was different or had a destiny in life. All she knows is that she has crazy dreams that she normally can not remember until now. All of a sudden she is thrown into a whole new world of daemons, and fighting for good against evil. While all this is going on she has the love of three guys who she does not want to hurt at all. They all three play a part in her life along with her best friend Amy. Lilly has powers that she is just finding out about and developing new ones along the way.
Between the male characters of Keith, Seth, and Samil it was really hard to pick who I liked more. Keith is very very sweet and caring. Seth is her protector and will give his life for her. Samil is her soul-mate but he is evil. The position she is in, is not a good position to be in.
Torn between the light and darkness she embarks on a journey to end the darkness with her friends. Will she be able to conquer it?
The only thing I found that was a wrote wrong was when Lilly met the fisherman Enrique, and then a page or two later called him Carlos. I had to go back and re-read a few times to see if it was a different character and it was not.
I can not wait to read book 2 because I definitely wanted more when Destined ended. If you enjoy reading action-packed, the paranormal, good vs. evil then please pick up this book. I don't think you would be disappointed.
